Fox Live Stream: How to watch FOX for free or cheap online
There are two good ways to watch FOX without cable.
Either hook up a TV antenna and enjoy your local FOX station in HD quality for free. Option number two is to try out a live TV streaming service, and stream FOX on a Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV or smartphone.
Hulu with Live TV and fuboTV are among the best live TV streaming services for streaming FOX because they have the most coverage for local stations in the U.S.
Either service works great for live streaming FOX.
Hulu’s Live TV lineup will have some musts for sports fans like ESPN. fuboTV doesn’t have that key network, but has sought after channels including NFL Network, NBA TV and lots of regional sports networks like NBCSN.
You can get a look at Hulu’s local channel lineup in your area before signing up for a free 7-day trial. You can also look over fuboTV’s channel offerings before trying out its service free for a week.
This guide will quickly review all of your choices to live stream FOX without needing cable TV from Comcast, Spectrum, Cox or anyone else.
Watch FOX live with an antenna
There’s no good reason these days to not at least try using an antenna. Just head over to AntennaWeb and punch in your zip code to see if there’s a broadcast tower for FOX in your area. If there’s one about 30 or 40 miles away, then you have an excellent chance of getting FOX for free.
Get some channels. Dump your cable TV subscription, and become a cord cutter. It’s pretty simple.
You can watch all the NFL or college football on FOX you want for free with an antenna. FOX also broadcasts the MLB World Series and most of the playoffs. The NASCAR Daytona 500, US Open, Champions League Final and Confederations Cup are also on FOX.
If you can’t use an antenna, then keep reading. I’ll show you how to live stream FOX without cable.
